HELPING AUTHORS FIND A LITERARY AGENT AND GET PUBLISHED

Young Widow pipped at the Border by the Dalai Lama

Blog, Young Widow's Book of Home Improvement

In the most eclectic collection of recommendations I’ve seen in a long time, my book is one of five selected for the current Shortlist by the Borders bookstore chain, a curated selection of titles emailed to their 300,000 or so online subscribers. The email features extras – an author Q&A and a download of Chapter One – that my publisher UQP submitted some months ago in the hope of eventual selection. So it’s a thrill to see my humble first offering among such fine if strange company – a vampire love story, a collection of titles on property investment and tax avoidance, a book of short stories, and 10 Questions for the Dalai Lama.  I suspect that’s about as close as I’ll ever get to His Holiness.
